Capital Olympians: Day 2

Olaf Kolzig, GER - Did not play in 5-1 loss to Canada

Alexander Ovechkin, RUS - Goal (2), 6 shots on goal (has lead Russia in SOG in both games), 2 penalty minutes, +1 in 5-0 win over Sweden

Ivan Majeksy, SVK - No points, no shots, even in Slovakia's 6-3 win over Latvia

What they're saying:
  • "'The young guys really came through today, especially in that second period to generate those scoring chances,' [Russian captain Alexei] Kovalev said, referring to Ovechkin and [Evgeni] Malkin." - AP
  • "There is also the contagious exuberance of players like Ovechkin, who scored for the second day in a row, this time just 52 seconds after Kovalev opened the scoring midway through the second period, happily throwing himself into his teammates' arms." -
